The Lifestyles Of The Poor And Uninsured

The Lifestyles Of The Poor And Uninsured:

“But what stuck in my craw is that Romney insists on housing these sickly, imagined uninsured people in apartments. I think it’s safe to say Romney isn’t much of an apartment guy. But though it’s probably accurate that homeowners are less likely to be uninsured than renters, it sounds to me like Romney’s caricatured lower class people in his mind and let it color the way he talks about their problems. If you’re uninsured, you can’t possibly have it together enough to own property, and, hey, probably you live in squalor too.”

(Via Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall.)

Exactly what I thought when I heard this quote the first time: Apartments.

If you live in a house, you obviously have health insurance, right?
